    Hi,
    We just hatched a batch and I am needing help in how to clean the top of this style turner, I can only get up so far with my lysol wipes and then the heating element and everything is enclosed under the plastic.
    Just wondered if anyone could tell me or direct me on how to clean that area?

    Thank you very much,
    Angela

    When I clean my hova I dip the edges VERY carefully in my tub of bleach water then wipe it down real good. I use a clorox wipe and run it over the plastic housing for the thermostat and fan. I leave it open to air dry. If the sun is out I set it out and let the sun do its magic to kill any other bacteria. It does it well to air out from the bleach and water solution also.

    I use a clorex wipe to clean the accurite thermometer and probe wire too.
